Description Wade Mealing 2005-12-05 20:25:18 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050921 Red Hat/1.0.7-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When searching through this list of " product or category(s)..." for step 1, I think that it would be easier if the list was a little more organised.  Ordered by the popularity of the product, not the alphabetics option it has now.

Something like this.

Red Hat Products

   Red Hat Enterprise Linux
   Red Hat Cluster Suite
   Red Hat Network
   Red Hat Application Server
   Red Hat Directory Server
   Red Hat Certificate System
Red Hat Projects

   Red Hat Academy
   Red Hat Ready Certification Tests
   Red Hat Raw Hide
   Client Engineering
   NSS - Network Security Services

Community Products

   Fedora Core
   Fedora Directory Server
   Fedora Documentation
   Fedora Extra
   Fedora Legacy
   Fedora Management Console 

Older Products

   Red Hat Linux
   Red Hat Powertools

All "Beta" should be rolled into a "beta" version selection in step 2.  Why is "Daves action Items" in the list ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into bugzilla
2. Click on Query
3. Look at "Step 1"

Actual Results:  Notice the alphabetic list of options.. I felt scared, confused and slightly hungry.

Expected Results:  I should feel enlightenment.  I feel that functional grouping is more important than alphabetic listing.

Additional info:

Just found an example..

Just for clarity, I think the url in question is.

Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
